St. Teresa’s values life

I was pleased to see the Auburn Journal address the abortion issue in Sunday’s paper. Roe v. Wade has been law since 1973 and will not cease to be an issue until it is reversed because it is against natural law. What does concern me is why the Journal did not pursue a comment from Father (Michael) Carroll on why no crosses at St. Teresa (of Avila’s) Church. The man does get a day off every once in a while. Wouldn’t it have been better to wait on the story until Monday, which is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and get the complete story? Father Carroll explained to the congregation his decision to not place the crosses. Yes, he, like all God’s loving people, is against abortion, but he has talked to too many women who are in pain and are remorseful about their abortion. Seeing all those crosses just rips off the scab of the abortion wound. He wants our parish to be a place of prayer and forgiveness where all life is valued, from conception to the grave. God bless Father Mike Carroll. VINCE DeWITT, Auburn
